Authors(3) :-Laxman D. Ghaywat, Shilpa Mandlik, Shahista A. Shaikh

Large amount of chemical fertilizers and pesticides are used to fulfill the demand of population which leads in to the different types of pollution. Tremendous use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides shows adverse effect on the health of human and animals. It also decreases the fertility of soil. Though the quantity of agricultural product is increased but the quality of agricultural products is getting down which directly affects the export value. In modern era farmers are turning towards the organic farming rather than the inorganic farming because they are aware about the side effect of chemical pesticides and fertilizers. The present study focuses on the use of bio-products as a pesticides and fertilizers to conserve the health of soil, farmer and environment.
